Gerry Fitzpatrick's Dublin gig news for May
From Gerry Fitzpatrick, organiser of the monthly Cabin Sessions series in Dundrum, south Dublin:
Just to let you know about a few special gigs for May:
1. Cabin Session guest Dave Hardy will be performing with his own Blue Clavon Orchestra in the National Concert Hall on Saturday 10 May. Dave is an amazing musician and singer, and to see him lead his orchestra in the NCH is a spectacle not to be missed.
2. Northern Californians Kathy Barwick & Pete Siegfried [see the BIB for 4 Feb. 2014] will bring you an evening of American folk music in the intimate surroundings of the Studio at the Mill Theatre, Dundrum, on Wed. 21 May. Seating is limited, so early booking advised. Special guests are Cabin Sessions trad guitar maestros - The Fret Pickers (Pat Killalea & Cathal Cusack).
3. My good buddy Kevin Montgomery will be playing in the Dublin Conservative Club (20 Camden Row - just down the side of Whelan's) on Friday 16 May. Kevin is a singer/ songwriter from Nashville with a strong musical pedigree. His dad Bob Montgomery was a colleague of Buddy Holly and co-wrote 'Heartbeat' with Buddy. Kevin's mum sang backing vocals on 'Suspicious minds' (Elvis Presley). For this trip to Ireland, Kevin is joined by Wexford musician Clive Barnes. Contemporary American country music doesn't get any better than this!
